A blog job you don’t need to write for

I’ve been asked a few times how I got my current job at Brandcurve.

Simple: I kept my eyes open.

I needed a job that I could do from any location, and it made sense to start getting paid for something I was already doing.

So here’s a heads up…

Startup Princess is looking for a blog manager.

You don’t even need to write much. (Although writing skills would definitely be helpful.) But mostly it seems to be about being responsive to the blogs regular writers, handling their multimedia and ads etc. Honestly, for a first-timer the renumeration is pretty good.

For anyone looking at other roles, I strongly recommend Problogger’s boards.

A few tips though:

  • Once something is online, it’s online. Consider your personal brand before taking something up.
  • As part of that – always check out the website before applying.
  • For any blogging job it will help if you have your own blog – it’s free and it shows you can do it.
  • The most common platform is wordpress – get familiar with it.
  • Having multiple blogs linking to each other is good for your page rankings.
  • Having multiple blogs you don’t have time to write for properly is just not worth it.
